Anyone find a good Web Browser?

The mobile internet browser on the instinct seems a bit week. I was hoping to hear there would be some updates that would bring us closer to Opera mini, or Skyfire. Skyfire, looks amazing, is there a chance it will be ported to the instinct? The functionality is greatly desired. The current browser doesn't seem to handle flash or java very well, YouTube Support would be good. Generic imbeded Video Support would be great. Has anyone found a good free browser?

Adding a secure browser would be wonderful, I would love to be able to do online banking on my mobil phone again. This is the biggest downfall of this phone, and if not corrected I feel that it will also be a set back it cant come back from.

It does Youtube well. when you load a video it automatically goes full sceen. However, it won't support divx or other vid format sites. yes, security certs would be great, but probably difficult to pull off having a full blown cache in browser on a phone this small. yes, I absolutely wish someone had a browser that is compatible. They pumped the internet speed up way too much to be so weak. Did they not do side by side focus groups before they made all of those adverts?

Ah, I must have been doing something wrong wtih the Youtube, Kudos to the current browser for it YouTube handling. Still, the browser is agrivating. Perhaps someone knows why my instinct says it can't load/log into hotmail. It reports an error saying I need javascripts to be enable to run the sight, but the browser options indicate I do have java enabled. Java vs JavaScripts, Same thing?

Now, maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I find it ironic that this very website can't be used effectively on my Instincts Browser. Maybe its me, I've been wrong before.

As far as I know Skyfire will work on Windows Mobile only first. If I am wrong, sorry.

Didn't pay attention to the thread just thought this was a good a place as any to bring up Android. Think this device is compatible with it?
